3 We re Here to Help Responsible for the billing and collection of tuition, fees, and room and board charges, Northwestern s Office of Student Accounts handles more than 24,000 student accounts each year. We re here to answer your questions and resolve any problems concerning the University s financial regulations. Please contact us at Office of Student Accounts 555 Clark Street, first floor Evanston, Illinois (fax) About This Booklet This booklet provides information on financial regulations for the academic year that apply to students on the Evanston campus. It replaces all listings of fees and financial regulations published before September 1, The information in this booklet does not apply to students on the Chicago campus or in Summer Session or special programs. Please read this booklet carefully. Failure to read Financial Regulations for Students on the Evanston Campus does not excuse you from compliance with the rules and regulations included here. Northwestern University reserves the right to change without notice any statement in this booklet concerning, but not limited to, rules, policies, tuition, fees, curricula, and courses. 1

4 Your Financial Obligations As a Northwestern student, you are responsible for fulfilling your financial obligations to the University. If your account becomes overdue, you must pay a late payment fee of $200. In addition, you are liable for any costs associated with collection of your unpaid bills, including, but not limited to, collection agency costs, court costs, and legal fees. The director of student accounts may cancel or prevent the registration of students whose accounts are overdue. Students whose University bills are unpaid when due may not be issued their diplomas or transcripts or have their enrollment or degrees confirmed until all financial obligations are paid in full. Bills and Payments Billing Address Northwestern sends bills electronically and will notify you at your Northwestern address when a bill is ready for viewing on ebill/epay (via CAESAR). Your account will be available 24 hours a day. Instructions on ebill/epay guide you through setting up a password to allow your parents to see and pay your bills. For those who opt to have a paper bill, invoices will be sent to the designated billing address or, if none is designated, the current address. It is your responsibility to keep all your addresses (including ) up to date. Failure to receive bills is not sufficient cause for extending payment due dates. Your billing address is maintained separately by the Office of Student Accounts and is not affected by address changes you make through any other University office. You may update your billing address online at If you have concerns or questions, please contact the Office of Student Accounts. Billing Schedule Fall-quarter bills are sent out during the last half of August. Bills for winter and spring quarters are sent shortly after completion of advance registration for those terms (mid- December and mid-march, respectively). Payments for are due on the following dates: Fall quarter September 1, 2015 Winter quarter January 1, 2016 Spring quarter April 1, 2016 If you do not receive your bill for fall or any subsequent quarter, contact the Office of Student Accounts one week before the payment deadline to find out the amount due. 2

5 For estimates of what you owe, refer to your school s rate schedule in this booklet as well as your housing contract. Failure to receive bills is not sufficient cause for extending payment due dates. Billing Information The first bill for each quarter is based on information available before the beginning of the term, and additional charges or adjustments may appear on subsequent bills. Please read each invoice carefully, including the two spaces for special messages. Details of your account may be viewed online at Financial aid credits will not be reflected on your account until the tuition charges for that quarter appear. Aid credits also may be removed from your account if you do not comply with necessary procedures. It is your responsibility to contact the appropriate financial aid officer if problems or delays occur. Adjustments We strongly recommend keeping each bill as an itemized record of charges and credits. If you wish to contest a portion of the bill, you should pay the uncontested portion by the due date and immediately contact the appropriate office to request an adjustment. A list of the offices responsible for various billing items appears on each invoice. To avoid a hold on your registration for the next quarter, pursue adjustments promptly. Payments Payments must include your name and Wildcard (Northwestern ID card) number. Checks and money orders should be made payable to North western University. All checks must be payable in US dollars and drawn from US banks; your cancelled checks will serve as receipts. Loan checks used as payment must be properly endorsed. You may pay in person and receive a receipt by presenting your payment and the top portion of your invoice to the Depository Services Office, located at 619 Clark Street, 8:30 a.m. 4 p.m., Monday Fri day. To avoid waiting in line, you may pay by electronic check at Because payments are cashed on receipt, postdated checks will not be honored. QuikPAY North western s preferred means of transmitting bills for tuition and fees is QuikPAY, an electronic billing and payment service that provides notification of each new bill, allows payments to be made online, and offers the option (under User Prefer ences ) to receive paper bills. QuikPAY is free of charge to students and authorized payers such as their parents. Additional information about QuikPAY is available at 3

6 9PAY Payment Plan The University provides a tuition and fee installment payment plan called 9PAY that allows participants to divide educational costs for the entire academic year into nine monthly payments. Additional information about 9PAY is available at Third-Party Payments If a third party such as your employer or other sponsor pays your tuition at the beginning of the term without stipulations, the Office of Student Accounts is able to facilitate the billing and payment process for you. First, your employer or sponsor must agree to pay your tuition regardless of the courses taken or the grades received. A written statement of this agreement, which is renewable annually, must reach the Office of Student Accounts no later than one month before classes begin. It should specify the appropriate contact person s name and telephone number, the address to which invoices should be sent, the period covered by the authorization, and the charges to which it applies (tuition, fees, books, University housing, etc.). It is expected that payment will be made within 30 days of the invoice date. If your employer or sponsor does not agree to these terms, you may be able to negotiate alternative arrangements in which the Office of Student Accounts does not work directly with the third party. For example, some employers are unwilling to pay unless students receive passing grades. In these cases, students pay their tuition and fees on their own and later apply for reimbursement from their employer. If your employer or sponsor fails to make payments on time, the University will cease to facilitate the third-party payment process for you, and it becomes your responsibility to make payments when expected. Because you as a student are responsible for your account at all times, you will receive invoices even while a third party is receiving invoices. In the event that the third party fails to pay, responsibility for paying the invoice and any appli cable late payment fees reverts to you. The third party may or may not reimburse you for these charges. Returned Payment Items If your payment item (electronic ACH, check, or credit card payment) is returned by the bank for any reason, you will be assessed a $35 fee. If the item was made in payment of a University charge, you may also be assessed a late payment fee of $200 and have your advance registration for the next quarter cancelled. 4

7 Late Payments A late payment fee of $200 is assessed once each quarter on amounts remaining unpaid, in whole or in part, after the due date. A late fee caused by a delayed financial aid disbursement may be cancelled, provided the amount not covered by aid was paid by the due date. Inactive Accounts An inactive account maintenance fee of $5 will be charged in each month your tuition and fee account remains open after your last term of registration has ended. Financial Aid Payments Federal Title IV financial aid, excluding federal work-study, is applied directly to your tuition and fees account. This account may include charges other than tuition, allowable fees, and room and board, e.g., library fines, parking fines, room damage charges, and health service fees. You may authorize the University to use your Title IV aid to pay for such charges, and you may rescind this authorization at any time through the Office of Student Accounts. Institutional financial assistance, outside scholarships, and state assistance are applied directly to bills for tuition and fees. Therefore, students are required to forward scholarship checks to the Office of Financial Aid for appropriate application of the funds. Graduate student tuition grants and loans are also applied directly to tuition bills. Graduate stipends are usually disbursed as monthly checks mailed to departmental offices. Student loan funds that are transferred electronically from the lender to the University will be applied to your account. Likewise, student loan checks made copayable to you and the Univer sity must be applied to your account; they cannot be endorsed and returned to you. To endorse a student loan check at the Office of Student Accounts, you must present a valid Wildcard. If the aid award applied to your bill exceeds the charges, after classes begin you may request the balance of the award for the quarter by contacting the Office of Student Ac counts or using CAESAR s self-service feature. The refund will be made by check or, if you provide prior authorization via self-service in CAESAR, by direct deposit to your financial institution. First-time student loan recipients must complete student loan entrance counseling before Federal Stafford Loan (subsidized, unsubsidized, and Grad PLUS) and Federal Perkins Loan proceeds can be applied to their accounts. FSL entrance counseling should be completed online at www. 5

8 studentloans.gov. A link for Perkins Loan entrance counseling information will be provided in an during the application process. Students must complete loan exit counseling upon leaving the University for any reason, including graduation. Contact Student Financial Services at to schedule exit counseling. Notice of Right to Cancel. You have the right to cancel all or a portion of your FSL within 14 days of the date of the disbursement notice. If you decide to cancel your loan, contact the Office of Financial Aid. Tax Liability. If your grant or scholarship exceeds qualified tuition and related expenses, it may be taxable and therefore reportable to the Internal Revenue Service. Qualified tuition and related expenses are defined as tuition and fees required for enrollment or attendance and fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for courses and instruction. Questions concerning the taxability of a grant or scholarship should be directed to the IRS or a qualified tax consultant. Additional information. Financial aid information is available in the University s catalogs for undergraduate and graduate study and from the appropriate financial aid office. Communication is a valid mode of official communication with students at Northwestern. The Univer sity has the right to send official communication to you by and to expect that you will receive and read your messages in a timely manner. The University provides a convenient mechanism for forwarding from your official University address to the alternate address of your choice. Students who choose to have forwarded do so at their own risk; Northwest ern is not responsible for forwarded to any address other than the student s University address. Failure to receive or read in a timely manner official University communications sent to your Northwestern address does not absolve you from knowing and complying with the content of the communication. Refund Policy Change of Registration You may not add a course or change a section after the fifth day of classes. To change your original registration (i.e., drop or add courses or change sections), you must obtain a Change of Registration form from the Registrar s Office and return it within the first five days of classes. The University cannot give refunds or reduce tuition bills for any course dropped after the fifth day of classes. 6

9 Students registered less than half-time are usually not eligible to receive institutional and federal financial assistance. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information. Withdrawal from the University and Refunds If you withdraw from the University after registering for classes, you must immediately file a Withdrawal form, bearing the proper signatures, at the Office of the Registrar. The Offices of Student Accounts and Financial Aid consider the date the completed form is received at the Registrar s Office as the official date governing financial adjustments. If you do not notify the Office of the Registrar of your intent to withdraw, the midpoint of the quarter will be recorded as the official withdrawal date. Tuition deposits are not refundable under any circumstances. Tuition, less the tuition deposit, and refundable fees may be fully refunded. The percentage of tuition refunded depends on the percentage of time you were enrolled in the quarter. The following policy applies: If you withdraw when or before the first 10 percent of the quarter has elapsed, 100 percent of tuition (less the tuition deposit) is refunded after 10 percent but not more than 25 percent of the quarter has elapsed, 75 percent of tuition is refunded after 25 percent but not more than 50 percent of the quarter has elapsed, 50 percent of tuition is refunded after 50 percent of the quarter has elapsed, no refunds are given The refund period for the quarter is defined as the official first day of the quarter to the official last day of the quarter. Final exam weeks are not considered part of the refund period. Financial aid recipients who withdraw from the University may be required to return a portion of their Title IV funds to the federal programs as well as some of their state assistance, outside scholarships, and/or institutional financial aid. Three different calculations the Institutional Refund, Return of Title IV Funds, and Return of Non Title IV Funds are used to determine such repayments. Institutional Refund. The Institutional Refund calculation determines the amount of tuition to be refunded if you withdraw from the University as outlined above. 7

10 Example You enroll in the fall quarter as an undergraduate. The University s tuition charges total $16,208. You receive a University Grant of $10,220 along with the following federal (Title IV) financial aid for fall quarter: a $1,132 Federal Stafford Loan, a $1,450 Federal Perkins Loan, a $1,100 Federal Pell Grant, a $1,300 National Smart Grant, and a $1,334 Federal SEOG. You pay $804 of the FSL toward Univer sity charges and retain the remaining $328. You then withdraw from the Uni ver sity when 20 percent of the fall quarter has elapsed. In this case, University policy mandates a 75 percent refund of the tuition for the quarter, and the University retains the remaining 25 percent. Example, Part A: Institutional Refund Amount Institutional charges retained by school: (25% x $16,208) $4,052 Institutional Refund amount: $16,208 (total institutional charges) 4,052 (amount retained by school) $12,156 (amount of institutional refund) The Institutional Refund calculation reflects only the adjusted tuition amount. If you are a financial aid recipient, the Return of Title IV Funds calculation also applies. Return of Title IV Funds. The Return of Title IV Funds calculation determines how much of your Title IV aid for the quarter must be returned to the federal programs as a result of your withdrawal from the University. If your withdrawal date is after the first 60 percent of the quarter has elapsed, the amount of federal aid you retain is 100 percent, and no return of Title IV funds is required. However, a portion of your non Title IV funds i.e., state assistance, outside scholarships, and/or institutional financial aid may have to be returned. (Refer to Example, Part C.) If your withdrawal date is before the first 60 percent of the quarter has elapsed, the amount of Title IV aid you retain is based on the number of days that elapsed in the quarter prior to your withdrawal divided by the total number of days in that quarter. Example, Part B: Return of Title IV Funds Total Title IV funds disbursed: $6, Title IV funds retained by student: (20% x $6,316) $1,263.20* Title IV funds to be returned: $6, (total Title IV funds disbursed) 1, (amount retained by student) $5, (amount to be returned) *Based on withdrawal when 20 percent of the quarter has elapsed. 8

11 In this case, the amount of Title IV funds to be returned is due entirely from the University. Other situations may require the student to make repayments. Any Title IV funds to be returned will be due and distributed in the order prescribed by federal regulations: (1) Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan (FSL) (2) Subsidized FSL (3) Federal Perkins Loan (4) Federal PLUS Loan (5) Federal Pell Grant (6) National Smart Grant (7) Federal SEOG (8) Other Title IV assistance programs In terms of the example, reimbursement is distributed as follows: Subsidized FSL $1,132.00* Federal Perkins Loan 1, Federal Pell Grant 1, National Smart Grant 1, Federal SEOG 70.80** Total amount to be returned $5, * Although $804 of the $1,132 Subsidized FSL was applied toward University charges, the University must refund as much of the Stafford Loan as the refund calculation permits. ** Because of its place in the order of distribution, the Federal SEOG was not reimbursed for the full amount of its contribution. Return of Non Title IV Funds. State assistance, outside scholarships, and University-appropriated grants for the quarter must be reviewed as a result of your withdrawal from the Univerisity. State assistance and outside scholarships are also subject to the requirements of their respective sources/donors. Example, Part C: Return of Non Title IV Funds Institutional charges retained by school (per Example, Part A): (25% x $16,208) $4, Title IV funds retained by student: $1,263.20* Unpaid institutional charges: $4, (institutional charges retained by school) 1, (Title IV funds retained by student) $2, (unpaid institutional charges) * This amount is the initial Federal SEOG of $1,334 less the $70.80 returned to Title IV. In this case, the amount of non Title IV funds i.e., the University Grant of $10,220 exceeds the unpaid institutional charges; therefore, a portion of the grant must be returned. Non Title IV funds to be returned: $10, (amount of University Grant) 2, (unpaid institutional charges) $7, (amount of grant to be returned) 9

12 Any University-appropriated assistance you retain and use for unpaid institutional charges can be counted toward your 12 quarters of institutional grant eligibility. Any other assistance retained may also be counted toward your maximum quarters of eligibility. As shown here, financial aid repayments may be distributed among several different programs, but the amount returned to any given program cannot exceed the amount of its original award. If any funds remain after all necessary adjustments have been made, they will be released to you. However, if the refund calculations cause a balance due on your tuition account, you will be required to make the appropriate payments. Student Repayment of Title IV Funds. If you withdraw from the University, you may be required to immediately repay some of the Title IV financial aid that was given directly to you as a cash dis burse ment (excluding federal work-study) to cover living expenses. Living expenses are defined as educational costs above and beyond the amount the Uni versity charges for tuition and fees. Living expenses include estimated costs for room and board (not contracted with the Uni versity), books, supplies, transpor tation, and personal expenses. The University must determine whether you need to repay a portion of the cash disbursement you received prior to your withdrawal. If the cash disbursement is greater than the amount of Title IV aid to be returned by the school, you are required to repay the excess amount. Until the repayment is collected in full, you will be ineligible for further Title IV funds and will be reported on subsequent financial aid transcripts received by the Office of Financial Aid as owing a repayment. The Office of Student Accounts will notify you of the amount owed and bill you accordingly. Housing Contract Adjustments Residence and meal contracts are signed for the full school year. If you leave your residence before the end of the year, you may be liable for the entire year s rent or for charges to the date you are replaced in University housing. Meal charges are assessed through the end of the week in which your withdrawal takes effect. Adjustments may be made at the discretion of the Housing Office for students who, for financial reasons, make room and board arrangements other than those for which they first contracted. For more information about withdrawals and University housing agreements, see pages (page 21 for graduate students) as well as your housing contract. 10

13 Military Service If you are ordered to report for active duty in a military service during an academic term and thus are unable to complete coursework that term, you will receive a full refund of tuition and fees for the term. However, if you make arrangements with the instructor and school to receive credit for one or more courses, the refund will be prorated according to the credit received. You must present proof of induction or recall to active duty to the Office of Student Accounts. Undergraduate Registration Requirement The Undergraduate Registration Requirement applies to undergraduate students seeking a bachelor s degree and must be completed in addition to the degree requirements established by the various school faculties. Each school specifies a minimum number of units of credit needed for a bachelor s degree (45 or more, depending on the degree). The URR specifies the number of quarters a student must be registered at Northwestern and how much credit must be earned at Northwestern. It is predicated on the principle that when a student receives a bachelor s degree from Northwestern University, the majority of the student s academic work is completed at the University. For purposes of the URR, the following definitions apply: Being registered at Northwestern for a quarter means that during that quarter the student is registered for and completes Northwestern coursework worth at least 2 full units of credit under the supervision of Northwestern faculty members. Eligible coursework includes, for instance, the practicum in the School of Education and Social Policy and the Journalism Residency in the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications. It does not include the Walter P. Murphy Cooperative Engineering Education Program or most study abroad credits (see note on page 12). For counting number of quarters, a credit-bearing course is considered completed if a student receives any of the following grades: A, B, C (including pluses and minuses), D, F, P, N, X, Y, K, or W. Only credits earned (not just attempted) count toward the minimum units of credit needed. Thus, only courses in which the student receives an A, B, C (including pluses and minuses), D, or P are included. The provisions of the URR are as follows: A student entering as a freshman in a four-year degree program must be registered at Northwestern for at least 9 quarters and earn credit for courses worth at least 32 units at the University. 11

14 A student entering as a freshman in a dual bachelor s degree program must be registered at Northwestern for at least 12 quarters and earn credit for courses worth at least 42 units at the University. A student entering as a transfer student in a four-year degree program must be registered at the University for at least 6 quarters and earn credit for courses worth at least 23 units at the University. A student entering as a transfer student in a dual bachelor s degree program must be registered at Northwestern for at least 9 quarters and earn credit for courses worth at least 32 units at the University. Students in Northwestern s Honors Program in Medical Education and Integrated Science Program are subject to special URR regulations; refer to the programs and the registrar s websites for details. As noted above, most study abroad credit does not count toward the URR. There is one exception: Some Northwestern study abroad programs offer courses with Northwestern course numbers and the SA course designation. A student who completes at least 2 full units of credit in such courses during a quarter is considered to be registered at Northwestern for that quarter, and these credits will count toward the minimum needed to satisfy the URR. Transfer credit for study abroad courses that do not carry Northwestern course numbers and the SA designation will not be counted toward the URR. A student may appeal for a URR variance to the Registration Requirement Appeals Committee, which consists of the associate provost for University enrollment, the associate provost for undergraduate education, the University registrar, and two associate or assistant deans from different undergraduate schools. The deans serve three-year terms on a rotating basis. The student should submit a written petition to the degree auditor in the Office of the Registrar. The petition must be specific and document any unusual or mitigating circumstances, such as illness, family hardship, or a death in the family. The student should also submit a letter from an academic adviser who is familiar with the situation. The Registration Requirement Appeals Committee convenes on a regular basis to review petitions. For additional information, interpretation, or application of the URR, contact the Office of the Registrar, 633 Clark Street, Evanston, Illinois , , or Returning Students Students who withdraw from the University and wish to return must submit a Returning Student Applica tion Form to the Office of the Registrar six weeks before the desired 12

15 date of reentry. Students who want credit for coursework taken at another institution must submit an official transcript to the Office of the Registrar. Tuition and Fees: Undergraduate and Graduate Degree Programs The cost of a Northwestern education is only partly covered by tuition charges; the balance is met by income from invested funds and by gifts from alumni and other supporters of the University. Tuition and fees listed here are for the academic year , excluding Summer Session Increases should be expected in subsequent years. For tuition purposes the term course refers to course credit. Some course offerings carry more than one course credit. Undergraduate Tuition Full-time (3 5.5 units): each quarter $16,208 Part-time (fewer than 3 units): each course, each quarter $5,766* Overload Charges and Nondegree Special Students All undergraduate students in degree programs must conform to the Undergraduate Registration Requirement. Per the URR, an undergraduate degree-seeking student who takes more than 5.5 units of credit in a quarter will be subject to a per-course overload charge. These rates also apply to nondegree special students. Full-time nondegree (3 5.5 units): each quarter $16,208 Part-time nondegree (fewer than 3 units): each course, each quarter $5,766* Excess courses (more than 5.5 units): each course $5,766 *Financial aid programs typically require at least half-time enrollment.

20 Undergraduate Residence and Board Contracts Residence Contracts and Rates Only students who are regularly enrolled at Northwestern, either as degree candidates or as special students, are eli gible for residence in University housing. If your student status is terminated for any reason, you are no longer eligible to live in University-owned housing. All students assigned to residence halls must sign residence and board contracts before they may occupy their assigned spaces.
